Q How much will my agency collect from me for the placement fee?
– POEA does not allow the collection of placement fees on countries where it is prohibited. Seafarers and workers recruited through POEA-GPB do not pay placement fees.
In countries where collection is allowed, the maximum legal placement fee charged by licensed recruitment agencies from applicants must not be more than one-month salary of the worker, except like countries like Taiwan/Korea which have special placement fee schedules.
The amount does not include documentation and processing costs.
